Forum: etree Subject: Re: Download Speed/Limit????

Thanks for the possible reasons, but this started almost a week ago and I have been battling this the whole week. Any show I try on any of the ertee servers is super slow. Any other possibilities?

Thanks

You can also find this result when downloading in the evenings, since that's when most the traffic shows up. I rarely even attempt to grab stuff after 3pm EST, but last I checked I had similar results.

When I log in at 6:30 am (also EST) to grab a show before work, I always hit my cap of 90K. Try that and see how it works. (FTP clients that have a scheduler built in are particularly useful if you're a late sleeper.)

Thanks for the suggestion. I may try at 6 am a few times and see. I usually am starting about 8 am or so and try through til about midnight but there has been no difference. It even takes me forever just to pull up a page anywhere on etree. Hopefully I will figure it out. Still up to hearing any other thoughts. Thanks.

I would love it if torrents were available for all 4 etree servers. It would work perfectly for situations like this where everyone is downloading the same thing... I used it for a couple of shows on etree01 and it was fantastic!

I second Brad's post above. I hit etree3 early this morning and got all the way to D2T03 on the DMB 12/21/02 show, and when I got home this evening it had stopped. Mornings are definitely better right now. And yes, this server is slammed because of that show......an amazing one it was.

Thanks to eveyone who replied to my post, I really appreciate it. I guess it's just because of THE SHOW (dmb12-21-02). The only reason I could think of why it was so slammed before that show is because DMB fans now know about etree and how great it is to download from. I saw the other winter tour shows start poppoing up pretty quickly and ever since 12-10-02 came up I have yet to download very fast. I will try a download manager or just get my lazy butt up a little earlier. Thanks again everyone. AND A HUGE THANKS TO ERTEE FOR THE GREAT SITE!!!!!!
